Morning Joe Slams Trump’s 60 Minutes Hit: Came Off as ‘Big Baby’; ‘Ill-Equipped and Unfit to Lead’

Morning Joe opened their show this morning with a collectively stunned reaction from President Donald Trump’s wide-ranging and free-form 60 Minutes interview with Lesley Stahl.

In the view of hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, the Commander in Chief came off as a “big baby” and appeared ill-equipped and unfit to lead the country.”

Frequent contributor John Heilemann chimed in with an “emperor’s got no clothes” reference but it was panelist John Podhoretz who finally arrived at providing analysis of Trump’s particular rhetoric on display.

“It was Trump coming fully out and saying I am running — I wouldn’t say immoral, but ‘beyond moral’ presidency,” said the consistently besweatered contributor.

Later in a 20-minute segment (of which only four minutes are excerpted here), Scarborough ridiculed Trump’s response to Stahl’s questioning about dealing with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, saying”how could conservatives not be shocked and offended by what he’s doing, after all we heard and a lot of what I said over eight years about Barack Obama kowtow to Iran.”
